Is It Possible To Live Without Neck Pain & Headaches? Here’s What You Need To Do When Your Regular Treatment Plans Don’t Work Anymore
“How can I get Physical Therapy at Home?” Jerry M. in Rantoul asked this simple question when he saw his neighbor receiving Physical Therapy in her apartment. Jerry lives in an assisted living facility. After a friendly introduction and a few questions, Jerry mentioned to our therapist that his knee pain is getting worse, making it harder for him to stand and is not walking as well as he used to. After a quick evaluation, our therapist, Kris Thope, concluded that Jerry can indeed benefit from physical therapy. We called Jerry’s doctor, received an order and started therapy within a few days.

Doyousufferfromfrequentneckpainandheadaches? People literally live on acetaminophen and Ibuprofen for years because they constantly have a nagging headache, induced by muscle spasms in the neck. A concern with those who have frequent headaches, is an underlying neck problem that may go untreated. The Cause of Most Headaches Headaches can range from minor nagging pains, to full-blown migraines that knock you off your feet for a day or two. Any headache, whether tremendous pain or not, should be a warning sign that the muscles in your spine and neck may be too tight and tense.
Prolonged muscle tension may cause you to feel stiff and achy. One may feel pain in the shoulders, neck, upper back and even radiating out to the upper arms. Most people who have headaches complain about having neck and shoulder pain. The most intense pain usually lies directly in the back and upper sides of the neck. The pain then radiates into the shoulder area. This is why many people who have headaches treat themselves to frequent neck and shoulder massages. Physical Therapy can help you to relieve the tightness and tension in your muscles, helping you live a happy, pain-free life.
